Castlewood Treatment Center is on a new course

Regarding “Castlewood lawsuit is drawing to a close” (Dec. 16):

The tragedy in this is that their actions could prevent people who need treatment for eating disorders from seeking help for this serious and challenging disease — either at Castlewood or another treatment center.

Millions of people suffer from eating disorders; they have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness.
